What’s Open at The Valley?

April 12th, 2021

We are incredibly excited to announce that all of our facilities at the Valley will be open from the 12th April, apart from the restaurant as per government guidelines. With social distancing measures still in place, we explain what to expect as we reopen the doors of our luxury cottages in Cornwall once again this spring.

Our Facilities

Here at The Valley, we pride ourselves as being a safe and secure family haven that welcomes your beloved pet dogs. We have many exclusive leisure facilities in our gated cottage complex for you and your family to enjoy. These include:

  • Restaurant
  • Fitness suite
  • Indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools
  • Spa Pool
  • Games room
  • Hot tub
  • Squash and tennis courts
  • Accessible location

Below we will be taking a look at the opening times and social distancing policies of each one!


Our cottages’ huge appeal is the option to self-cater or indulge in our onsite restaurant.


With most of our facilities opening from 12th April, our restaurant requires a slightly longer wait, with our doors planned to open on 17th May when our guests can safely sit in the indoor dining area.


Being in such an accessible location, our cottages are fantastic if you want to explore the restaurants in Truro or Falmouth, which provide outside dining areas before 17th May.

Swimming Pools

The Valley offers a fun family experience with our choice of indoor or outdoor swimming pools. Our outdoor pool is heated from the middle of June to September, and our indoor pool is fantastic for all-year-round fun!


All facilities that are usually communal, including our swimming pools, will be bookable by one family at a time, this can be organised when you arrive at the cottages. You will be given an available time slot to enjoy the exclusivity of the pool.

Other Communal Areas

Other communal areas such as our fitness suits, games room, squash and tennis court will also be accessible to individual families through our bookable slotting system, which can be arranged upon arrival.

Hot Tubs

Some of our luxury cottages are complete with a hot tub for you to unwind after an exciting day of exploring! Our hot tubs are extensively cleaned for your safety and hygiene.

We would like to mention that all of our cottages undergo thorough cleaning procedures every time our guests vacate to ensure that every one of our guests’ personal safety and welfare is adhered to. Our accommodation is expertly cleaned with an extremely high level of hygiene being maintained.

Outdoor Areas

Our beautiful cottages are set amongst the remote Cornish countryside, conveniently located away from local towns, meaning you can safely enjoy the seclusion and make the most of an abundance of open outdoor space.

Rescued Seal Pups back to the wild at Gwithian

April 24th, 2015


Six seal pups have been released into the wild today at Gwithian Beach near Hayle. The pups, who were rescued earlier this year by the Cornish Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, were named and nursed back to health and now Odin, Shrek, Hulk, Pepper, Frost and Aquaman are back in coastal waters off Cornwall.


Each year, the seal sanctuary takes in seals and seal pups that have become stranded or injured. Sometimes the pups get separated from their mum, and other times adult seals are injured in bad weather conditions or other incidents. The sanctuary has seen a rise in animals injured after becoming tangled up in plastic rubbish or discarded fishing gear. Injured seals are treated in the sanctuary hospital and then go on to recuperate in the pools before being released.


The Seal Sanctuary is also a child and pet friendly day out as there are lots of things for children to do and dogs are allowed into the sanctuary on leads. A day out here can be wallet friendly too if you buy tickets online – plus if you don’t see it all you can go back as many times as you like in the following seven days.


The Seal Sanctuary at Gweek is only 20 minutes from our luxury cottages for pets in Cornwall here at The Valley.
